England target World Cup final but gifted Croatia stand in the way

The whole of England is awaiting the big kick-off on Wednesday night, with the Three Lions just one match away from their first World Cup final since 1966.

England manager Gareth Southgate is not about to change his team's approach for tomorrow morning's (Singapore time) World Cup semi-final against Croatia, saying he wants the "same again" from his young side.

He told a news conference: "I don't know what to say in response to this question".

However, the fact that the process of debating a petition and then turning it into law is a lengthy one means the likeliest way for a bank holiday to take place is if Prime Minister Theresa May declares one.

Although Croatia are the most hard opponents England will have faced in the tournament, Southgate's words suggest he will continue with his attacking formation and personnel.

MAN IN THE MIDDLE Cuneyt Cakir of Turkey will referee his second straight World Cup semifinal match, after Argentina's penalty-kick win over the Netherlands four years ago.

"I was 18 years old in 1998, it was one of the most attractive nights of my life".

In the United States, the game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on both Fox (English broadcast) and Telemundo (Spanish broadcast).

A Single Goal Sends France To The World Cup Final
N'Golo Kante spoke of his "immense joy" and "pride" at the feat and promised to give everything in the Moscow final. Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and France are about to get that chance. "Rami's moustache brought good luck", he said.

A total of 20 million - an 80% share of TV viewers - tuned in to the quarterfinal win on BBC One, with millions more watching in pubs around the country.

"For us as a team, it's another chance to create a small piece of history".

Against a tired Croatian side that has been pushed to penalties in their past two games, England have a clear advantage and will look to Kane to make the most of it. England had a free kick wide, but Subasic was able to come in with the save.

"We are just going to stick with what we have been doing all the way through". "The age of the players, the improvement in the players, the hunger in the players has been apparent for everybody to see".

"They'll be the best team we've played in terms of what they're capable of doing with the ball, and what their individuals are capable of, definitely", Southgate said of tonight's opposition.

Croatia made its only semifinal appearance in 1998, losing 2-1 to host France.

England is led by its captain, Harry Kane, who has scored six goals already at the 2018 World Cup and is the front-runner for the Golden Boot. It's completely irrelevant, that 4-1 defeat. "Why didn't you ask me how I played well against him?" Just do not forget to cancel the service if you don't want to pay the monthly fee, which will cost $20 and up.
